In the photo, two vehicles are partly submerged in water and on the verge of toppling over. They appear to be on a flooded bridge. Behind them is an excavator and a grader, and people standing in front of a partly hidden row of vehicles waiting to cross the flooded area.
“Mp for Nyando spoke a lot of English yesterday when hosted at Citizen tv but look at what his constituents are undergoing,,, Ndindi Nyoro gave facts on the economy and he is the best Mp in development and he can only be compared maybe with Didmus Baraza,,,Ghai some people we elect,,,,and he's there shouting BBI,,,some things just need reasoning,” the photo’s caption reads.
Temporary bridge washed away in 2019 floods
A reverse image search reveals the photo is not related to the 2021 floods.
The photo has been online from at least 27 September 2019 and was not taken in Kisumu county’s Nyando constituency.
The Star newspaper published it in September 2019, with this caption: “On Friday evening, the road remained impassable for more than 10 hours after raging floods swept away the temporary bridge at Kodada market in the area, September 27, 2019.”
